Carotid artery stenting followed by open heart surgery in 323 patients: One ‐year results and influencing factors
ConclusionsCAS followed by OHS is a safe and effective treatment for patients with concomitant carotid and cardiac disease within 1‐year follow up. The interval between CAS and OHS, congestive heart failure, and renal insufficiency could obviously influence the 1‐year results. (Source: Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions)

Bilateral branch pulmonary artery valve implantation in repaired tetralogy of fallot
Abstract BackgroundTranscatheter, bilateral branch pulmonary artery (PA) valve implantation is a novel treatment for patients with severe pulmonary insufficiency and oversized right ventricle (RV) outflow tract. There is scarce data on efficacy and safety of this approach. MethodsThis was a retrospective study of 8 patients with repaired tetralogy of fallot (TOF) who underwent bilateral branch PA valve implantation. Demographics, echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and axial imaging data were reviewed. Variables were compared by a paired sample t‐test. ResultsAll patients were adult sized (weight 43–99 kg) w...

Scaffold thrombosis following implantation of the ABSORB BVS in routine clinical practice: Insight into possible mechanisms from optical coherence tomography
Abstract ObjectivesTo identify potential underlying mechanisms of early and (very) late scaffold thrombosis (ScT) by optical coherence tomography (OCT), in a frame‐by‐frame analysis. BackgroundThe absorb scaffold is associated with an increased risk of ScT compared with metallic stents. Several potential causes of bioresorbable ScT have been identified, however the precise etiology still remains unclear. MethodsBetween February 2013 and February 2016, 13 patients presenting with definite ScT underwent OCT imaging. After guidewire passage or balloon inflations, OCT images were acquired. Pullbacks were assessed offline a...

Predictive value of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio in long ‐term outcomes of left main and/or three‐vessel disease in patients with acute myocardial infarction
Abstract ObjectivesWe sought to evaluate the independent predictive value of left main disease (LMD) and/or three‐vessel disease (LMD/3VD) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients. BackgroundPatients with acute coronary syndrome resulting from LMD and/or three‐vessel disease (LMD/3VD) are at the highest risk of adverse cardiovascular events. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as a marker of cardiovascular risk, but the prognostic value of NLR in patients with LMD/3VD who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is not clearly defined. MethodsPatients (n = 806) admitted w...

Retrograde transmitral paravalvular leak closure through an antegrade transseptal approach: A novel technique
Abstract Mitral paravalvular leak (PVL) remains a well‐known complication after mitral valve replacement. Since the first report over 25 years ago, several catheter‐based PVL closure techniques have been described. Most of these comprise of either an antegrade transseptal approach, or a retrograde transaortic or transapical approach. We herein report a novel percutaneous mitral PVL closure technique that was safely and successfully performed after failed attempt using a conventional antegrade approach.

Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate the procedural success and outcome of inter‐atrial stenting. BackgroundInter‐atrial stenting has been shown to be an effective way to maintain inter‐atrial blood flow, however it is considered a high risk procedure, usually performed urgently in patients with significant hemodynamic compromise. MethodsBetween September 2004 and August 2016, inter‐atrial stenting was attempted in 29 children. Procedural, clinical, and follow‐up data were collected retrospectively. ResultsThe procedures were completed successfully in 27 patients. Twenty‐five procedures were undertaken percutaneously...

Impact of pre ‐procedural hyponatremia on clinical outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement: A propensity‐matched analysis
This study aimed to assess the prognostic value of hyponatremia in patients who had undergone transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). MethodsWe investigated 1,215 consecutive patients (mean age: 84.4 ± 5.0 years) who underwent TAVR using data from the Optimized CathEter vAlvular iNtervention (OCEAN)‐TAVR Japanese multicenter registry. Hyponatremia was defined as a serum sodium value less than 135 mEq/L. The baseline characteristics, procedural outcomes, all‐cause, cardiovascular, and non‐cardiovascular mortality were compared between patients with hyponatremia (n = 106, 8.7%)...

Key Points Mild PVR has been shown to increase all‐cause and cardiovascular mortality after TAVR, especially in high surgical risk patients. Mechanistic and associative causes, as well imprecise ascertainment have been suggested as underlying etiologies of this association. Ongoing trials with newer valve technologies, broader patient inclusion and more systematic assessment of PVR may provide further insight into the prevalence, causality, and outcome of PVR.

Key Points This paper describes a quality improvement initiative featuring the adoption of multiple access and closure techniques to assess “real world” outcomes. Although the study does not provide a scientific evidence base, it does highlight the changing platforms being adopted.

Patient preference: An important emerging factor in operator access site selection
Key Points Patient preference should emerge as a third component influencing radial versus femoral access for cardiac catheterization. Ideally dually experienced “switch‐operators” will consider co‐morbidities, technical procedural factors, and patient preferences to choose a tailored approach with each patient. A tailored and tempered three component approach to access selection which includes patient preferences will likely optimize patient‐centered outcomes.
